We play Salford twice within the next 7 days. League game on Tuesday, Cup semi final on Saturday. Salford don't have the squad depth that we do but they have little chance of making the top 4 so will no doubt be focussing on the semi. Our top 4 spot is far from assured, and we have some big games coming up over the next 2 months, so we need to win both of these matches.

What team does Steve Price put out on Tuesday and what, assuming no injuries, should be the line up for the semi?

I think that he definitely has to rest Cooper on Tuesday, Currie is also due a breather. With Ratchford being rested last night I'm expecting him to play a part in both games. Maybe we'll see him and Ashton sharing FB duties whilst Ratchford can also move to the halves to spell Austin or Widdop?

Looking at the players that were a bit off, or flat against Les Cats;

Currie as mentioned didn't really spark
Coops was great but looked tired
King missed a couple of tackles and didn't feature as much as normal.

It's probably not a coincidence that the above have played in all our games so far and I would be tempted to leave them all out. I would also drop Blake Austin as he probably needs a rest.

Currie Robson
Coops Latu
King Brand
Austin Ratchford

In addition I think we will see some players spending a lot more time on the bench to freshen them up.

I have a sneaky feeling that price will play ratchford at 13 in the semi final, I reckon we will look more threatening with Ashton, ratch, widdop and Austin all on the pitch

At the very least we should be resting Cooper and Austin...

I suppose it will be hard to tell until we announce the squad tomorrow. 1 or 2 from Currie, King, Charnley and Clarke could be rested also.

I am expecting that Wire will rest as many as they can with the majority of the squad who don't usually get a game getting a run out. Wembley is a priority.

I agree its a priority but mainly on the basis of two more wins for silverware one defeat and your out.

Whereas without getting complacent our recent form has put us in good stead in the league. Out of the two theres only one pick if you could only win one

Thing is we've shown we can win without the 1st choicers so i think we're in a very healthy postion, rest 3 or 4 and play them in the semi and i'm confident in both as a win for us.

As above, with some out of J Clark,. D Clark, Charnley, Ashton, Hughes, Mamo. Doro and Thewlis to get game time, and maybe even Patton.

Squad due to be named tomorrow. It'll be interesting picking the game day 17 from that.
